There’s a lot of speculation in Hollywood. A ton of celebrities, quite understandably, prefer to keep their private lives just that.

They challenge assumptions, break the mold, and shine a light on injustice and prejudices. Here are 18 celebs who are proud to be members of the LGBTQ community.
1. Matt Bomer
White Collar and Magic Mike star Matt Bomer got his start in the early 2000’s in soap operas like All My Children and Guiding Light. That’s a far cry from the life his father anticipated for him! Bomer’s dad, who was a Dallas Cowboys draft pick, expected his son to follow in his footsteps. Matt says he wasn’t “that good” at football, but he had no trouble finding his place on the A-list. Bomer has been married to Simon Halls for more than five years, and they have three children together.
